A warning note before I go to the steps on how to uninstall preinstalled apps on Android without root: Even though the bloatware on your phone appears useless and take up the memory of your phone, they still have important work they do. Some of them are required by third-party apps to function properly.
So, if you paralyse the pre-installed apps, some of your third-party apps may not work properly again. But the good thing about this process of removing bloatware Android without root is that the process doesn’t permanently get rid of the bloatware.
